grant williams a new sentencing hear. >>> on to texas now, where football is like a religion, but in south texas, one public high school is accused of violating the separation between church and state by allowing cheerleaders to use bible verses on banners during the game. >> the one parent who did complain, it is just one. if you don't like it, don't come to our games. >> we're trying to fight it not for publicity, but for god's word. we're not fighting for our rights, we're fighting for god. >> the parents of the cheerleaders are fistanding the ground filing a suit. avery in cleveland, good to see you. >> hi, fredricka. >> and richard herman, criminal defense attorney and professor joining us from las vegas joining us as well. >> the school district cannot block these cheerleaders from using these banners with the bible verses, but isn't this an issue of church and state? >> yeah, that's a hometown ruling -- yeah, that's a hometown rule by a local judge that wants to get re-elected and has no bearing in law. the judge is flat out wrong. the united states supreme court has s
at a fundraiser talking about people clinging to funs and religion that people shorthand thinks in debates and in private. there is no response that will not contradict the text of the actual words he used. that is right. there is no ability to actually get out of that box and i think his best attempt is what he put up in his add. he says i square. he cares for the middle class i do too. >> let's listen to what peggy noonan had to say about romney's possibilities. >> i think he has a chance to no not likability and all that dumb stuff. he happens to be on stage with a guy who has been the president. with the president's lead with likability, you can't dismiss librariability. where would president obama be in the polls today? >> stewart, first of all, i talked not long ago to stewart st stephens. they want to make this an extended conversation. there are four debates. they may be hoping there are undecided voters now. so they care a whole lot about these debates. i think what they have to do is not worry so much about the likability factor. what she means by height and hest i don't know. th
results to a struggle between freedom of religion and the right of government to regulate society even when such regulations may interfere with religious doctrines because those are two points that are important here. there was a time in this country before 1965 when it was okay for a state to outlaw the use of contraceptions by married couples. several states had been for years. they were lingering on the books for years and finally the supreme court in a case called griswold versus connecticut said it was unconstitutional to prohibit married people from using contraceptions in the privacy of their bedroom. does the constitution have a provision that says government shall not prohibit married people from using contraception in their bedroom? no. it does not. it does have something called due process and with in due process the court eventually found that there was a right of privacy and for my libertarian friends in the crowd, it really means something you've been saying for years which is the government needs to get all of our lives to the extent possible and having the government re
, his taxes, religion, and in this case, george w. bush and the predecessor in the white house. if, in fact, romney talked and had talked more about bush, even being critical of president bush, then i think he would have plotted with much of his base. if you talk to conservative republicans, they say they are not happy with george bush and romney would have resonated with him had he talked to them. >> it's no wonder he can't answer that because his policies are just like pubush. 176 his 24 foreign advisers served under bush, top two economic advisers served under bush and rnc official saying that the romney policies are the bush plans updated. how do you answer that? >> it is. a former bush speechwriter told me that in fact the romney administration would be the third term of a bush presidency. and you look at it not simply on the fiscal policies and certainly what he's talked about publicly in terms of cutting taxes, deregulation, and so forth, sounds an awful lot a like that contributed to the economic woes but if you look at the foreign policy folks, there is a very strong neo-c
get those. to be secular jewish vote, which is a big part of new york city, their religion is socialism, -- [inaudible] but what may get them back in the tent is israel. and we need to just shift and 20% would be enough to win the election, but the district is 33% jewish, perhaps more 44% catholic, and then others. so the it doesn't feel warm, it's not a feel good feeling. on the other hand, when it comes to military spending the iron come defense system. it's not the first time egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israel embassy. the second time in a year in egypt embassies are fair game and it was in fact apparently prime minister gnat netanyahu called obama immediately and got on the phone there was no at the point and said do something about this protect these people. >> and they saved israelis. >> you know, people like debbie wasserman schultz say this is the best president in american history for his support of israel. barack says in terms of military spending. but if you ask people on the street they have a different feeling on the feeling to obama to i
in many ways is the quintessential american religion. joseph smith saw america as the promise land, as the place where the second coming would happen and it's a religion, basically, based in and vested in the idea of american exceptionalism. on the one hand, that should enable governor romney to talk about america in that way. the other point that he makes that you alluded to earlier, a religion in terms of its existence in america is based on adrsity andrej pice and combatting adversity and that should allow him also to rise to the occasion during presidential campaign. >> it makes it, presumably, a stronger campaigner out there, given the rough and tumble of a political campaign that's under way. you've also uncovered a really intriguing, pretty good picture that we've never seen of mitt romney before. i'll put it up on the screen. i want you to explain what's going on in this picture. >> yes, we think it's from about 69, wolf. it's gernor rney was on his missionary lead in france as a young man and it was when h was still courting then ann davies who was later tome his wife and
superintendent banned the banners because he got a complaint from freedom from religion, the group out of washington who said this clearly violates the separation of church and state. here's somebody else who opposes those banners. listen. >> the school can't support one religion over another, and you can't have bible scriptures by cheerleaders at an official school game. >> reporter: yeah, well now a state court has temporarily lifted the ban on the banners after a group promoting religious freedom agreed to represent the cheerleaders and the football players and, of course, the attorney general who's a republican in texas all weighed in backing the cheerleaders. so now the final court decision will come this week, and it all kind of comes down to whether or not these banners are being endorsed by the school or whether they are the personal beliefs of the cheerleaders, though we looked back, and cases like this have lost like in georgia and a 2000 supreme court decision which said kids cannot go on the intercom and say prayerses before the games start. so right now weighing a little b
whether they were wealthy or poor, moe matter who they were, what their age, their race, their religion and they would be able to get safe abortions and where the women were treated with respect and humanity. and this is what the providers in mexico that they were working with, they were considered very humane abortions. they always had this reputation as being a very dangerous and bad place but actually the program that they set up was the opposite. so much of what we're seeing is very similar. but we don't have the good underground yet. >> do you see people who are concerned about the erosion of abortion rights and the way that access has been winnowed away? it doesn't even feel like win w winnowed away. sooms like it's bei seems like it's become hacked up. do you see people trying to pool resources in terms of where it right still is accessible in a legal and safe way and those becoming sort of hubs for the country and other women trying to women try to get to those places? >> there are abortion funds where people raise money to provide for low-income women who live in states where
was to talk about his religion. that was very difficult during the course of the campaign with the conservative evangelical base suspicious of mormonism. the other thing is talk about his record of governor. one of his main things was health care reform in massachusetts. that also was very hard for him to do. >> he's talking about it now. he should have talked about it earlier. it's a big achievement to cover 98% of the people. >> let's put this in the context of the debates, chuck. are you surprised that christie decided and the romney campaign is saying, first debate, hits it out of the park, thursday morning things will be different? >> thank you, chris christie, for at least making the quote, the gaffe, the honest gaffe. the fact of the matter is, that has to be what happens after this first debate. the narrative has to change. the polls have to move. romney has to clobber the president in the first debate. >> if they don't move, it's over. >> in other words, are they happy with it? i kind of thing they needed the pep talk, ok? i think the base needs a pep talk. they n

a former assistant coach is blowing the whistle. >>> combining religion with technology. we're talking to the man who invented a bible lab aiming at bringing the good book into the 21st century. newsroom starts now. good morning to you. happy happy friday. i'm carol costello and begin this hour with the man who ignited so much violence around the world from nakoula basseley nakoula. picture pictures earlier this month. even he couldn't decide which name to give the judge. according to these documents, he has used at least 17 fake names. it's the web of lies, not the in siend jere film that has him sitting in jail this morning. good morning. >> reporter: i should be very clear about that. this is a federal probation violation that has him sitting in jail, as you say. there are two terms of his probation violation for a 2010 bank fraud conviction. he was not supposed to use any computer devices without the consent or prior knowledge of his probation officer. he also was not supposed to use any fictitious name. the great span of the hearing yesterday dealt with his identity. in fact, when
working-class voters hit hard by the economy, 55-28 for romney in a recent study from the public religion research institute. so there's a lot of work to be done, and there's a message to say, hey, look, this is not the new normal. do not be satisfied with spending a bunch of tax money to keep this mediocre status quo. romney needs to get on that message. jon: simon, roughly half of all jobs lost have been lost by white men, so how does president obama try to appeal to them? >> well, was i think -- because i think the white men view the economy the way that most voters see it which is they know that things were really bad when president obama came to office, and things have gotten better. i know that not everybody who watches this believes that, but that's the case -- >> a lot of people who don't have jobs don't believe that. >> i know, but things are getting better. there's nobody spiking the football here on the economy, but clearly things are not only getting better from where they were when obama took office, but in the last few months -- [audio difficulty] as you just heard a minute
and diversity. there's beauty. this is about acceptance of different cultures, religions, different peoples of all walks of life. >> reporter: david said it will be a prominent statement to the countless people who pass it. >> how we have rallied and stood up for what's right in this community. >> reporter: the community has shown endless support. hours later, a fund-raiser was also held to benefit the sikh temple victims and lieutenant bryan murphy who was shot 15 times by the gunman. >> he's a hero for the community and for everyone here in oak creek. he's a strong man. we can't be thankful for enough for what he's done. >> reporter: more than a hundred volunteers from the temple police department and other community businesses held a dinner and raffle to drum up money for those who are recovering and for those families who lost a loved one. wrist bands and t-shirts were also sold as a token of rather bans. >> it -- of remembrance. >> it touches my heart because i know what these people are going through. >> it's hard to see your friends and coworkers go through the difficulties they've h
't conservative enough and didn't put religion into the political marketplace enough. but i don't think that's going to be the widespread expectation of the american people. i think the tea party is seen as a force that energized the republican party initially. but is now really become an anchor around the party. mitt romney has really has not been allowed to advance more mainstream positions because the right and the religious right are holding him back and i think you can find a number of senate seats that the republicans would have captured in 2010. and in 2012. >> we're going to look at one in indiana a little bit later. >> quickly, ed, if it's not the conservative christian coalition that becomes the backlash group, if you will. what might that group look like in terms of demographics at least? >> i think eleanor touched on it at the beginning. if the president is able to win 70% of the hispanic vote or get close to that, republicans and some of them have been talking about it this cycle realize they have to find a way to appeal to the hispanic voters in this country. because if they do
's private. to him, it feels like bragging to tell these stories and it draws attention to his religion which he is reluctant to spend a lot of time on. there were people talking now, trying to encourage these stories and getting people to talk openly about their experiences. what is surprising is not so much his view on issues, but the thing that made him an attractive national candidate was the fact that he was able to work across the auto and he was, in fact, a moderate. in order to get the nomination, he had to go so hard right in order to bring those people on board and unfortunately, it seems he is not able to do the poll lead at most of them do at this point. most people say you have to be angry, tough, but that is not his temperament. that comes across as false. what i find myself hoping for, for the sake of the country and a fair fight is that he can get back to being the person that he is without worrying what anybody is going to think of him. what difference does it make? just to be who you are? it is no longer about the republican primary. >> if you are not authentic, we put a gir
